Colby Lewis has had some great starts this season but has followed them with some bad starts. In his first three starts of May, Lewis gave up just two earned runs in 21 innings and picked up two wins. Since then, Lewis has given up 19 earned runs in just 14.1 innings but managed to win one game while taking the loss in another.
This past week was a tough week for Lewis as he gave up nine earned runs on 11 hits in just 2 2/3 innings and took the loss. His ERA jumped from 3.49 to 4.70 after it had reached a season low 2.40 on May 11.
As the team looks to build upon a strong May, the Rangers will need Lewis to turn around his cold streak if they want to remain in the picture in the American League West. Lewis is scheduled to make his next start
And now, a look at who has been hot in the past week.
